  New Computer Game Glamorizes Drug-Taking
The Telegraph - UK A computer game in which players "use" crack cocaine, ecstasy and cannabis to give themselves a "power boost" was condemned last night as irresponsible by anti-drugs campaigners.
Critics said the game, called Narc, would glamorise drug-taking and undermine respect for the police, who are depicted in the game as taking the drugs to help them to catch criminals.
In the game, which will be released in the United States this week and in Britain in May, the players are elite undercover narcotics officers whose aim is to eliminate an international drugs cartel.

 GameSpy.com - Hall Of Fame: Elite
Elite was based around the premise that a player assumed the role of a deep space trader/pilot that was without reputation, wealth, or status.
Graphically, Elite revolutionized computer games, and was one of the pioneering titles to use a fully fl and white wire-frame 3D engine.
Elite really scored big with the trading aspect of game play; the feeling of running a large quantity of contraband under the feds' noses - and getting away with it - remains unrivaled even today.

The game is no prize pig in the graphics compartment, especially when you compare it to the superb visuals of other games such as Call of Duty 2, but it is adequate for the genre, and it is definitely better than any other Sniper orientated game I've played.

The only problem with Panzer Elite's treatment of artillery is that it seems unrealistically deadly as a tank killer and is perhaps more lethal than it should be against infantry under cover.
Although Panzer Commander and Panzer Elite both employ linear campaigns that require you to successfully complete a mission before moving on to the next, Panzer Elite's campaign is more interesting thanks to the role-playing element.
Perhaps the game's most serious oversight is the lack of a tutorial exercise or training range that lets you learn how to fire and maneuver in a nonhostile environment.

Building a game based on a licensed property is no easy task, and the struggle is only exacerbated when you are building a Star Trek game, given the franchise's rocky history on gaming platforms.
I think Elite Force is in an interesting situation because quite a few Star Trek games are due in the near future, including The Collective's Deep Space 9 game that uses the Unreal engine.
With Elite Force being the only first person action shooter based on Star Trek, I think we can corner those action gamers, and with our virtual Trek environments, we hope to capture a large audience that will enjoy just being in the surroundings of the Star Trek universe.

 Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force (pc: 2000): Reviews
Elite Force is faithfully to the series, loaded with action, and is a lot of fun to play.
The game's replay value is bolstered by its multiplayer modes, where you can select from the entire cast of the Voyager crew and battle online.
The main reason Elite Force works so well is that it combines not simply the Voyager license with the "Quake III" engine, but merges a well-written story with an incredibly solid first-person shooter.

 Game notes and reviews
Games last from 30 to 60 minutes usually, and this is an excellent range, because it allows for a deep enough game to be satisfying, and at the same time allows to take an easy break by jumping in, doing one or two games, without being stuck for too long.
Team play adds greatly to the enjoyment, but the game does not particularly reward individuals for being team players, and in particular for taking defensive positions, which means that sometimes play degenerates a bit into a fragfest, especially on servers with a lot of new players used to fragfest style online play.
This game can deliver the full complexity, and one finds himself switching fairly often between the various sensors, but the basic flying is fairly easy, and one can delegate quite a bit of the avionics to the NPC copilot, and the degree of delegation has been wisely chosen.

CHOLO is a classic wireframe 3D computer game, originally released in 1986 for the BBC Micro computer but quickly ported to a number of other 8-Bit systems (Namely the Sinclair Spectrum, Amstrad CPC and Commodore 64).
Your eventual aim (spelled out only in the BBC version) is to free the bunker dwellers by destroying the cap preventing them from leaving the nuclear shelter where what remains of the human race is living.
Some might think these changes bring the game more up to date, but others who want to play a faithful port of the original are likely to be disappointed.
